You won’t easily find a more authentic Galway bar than M. Fitzgerald’s. 

We’re right in the middle of it all, and if you just follow the craic down Shop Street and Quay Street, you’ll be upon us before you know it. We’re in the beating heart of Galway City’s Latin Quarter where craic, ceol, and cracking cuisine are about all you need on your trip. 

We’re a traditional Irish bar where warm welcomes mix with cold, creamy pints of stout. Where we serve amazing pub grub you’re sure to remember. And where you’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for – whether it’s a quiet drink, a well-deserved meal out, or a foot-tapping session. 


You’ve made it to Galway, and we’re glad you’re here. M. Fitzgerald’s is more than ready to welcome you with open arms. In fact, you’ll be made to feel like one of the locals, whether you’re sipping an Irish whiskey on the high stool or shooting the breeze with one of our team.  

Regardless if you want to take refuge from the rain with an Irish coffee and a book, stop by for a well-deserved bite to eat, or get your mates together for a good old session at the bar, we’re the spot to visit.  


It doesn’t matter if you’re a genuine Galwegian or not, because you’ll be made to feel like one as soon as you step foot over the M. Fitzgerald’s threshold. Everything from our menu to our music, and on to our overall atmosphere, sings with the soul of the place we call home.  

We use fresh, local produce in so many of our dishes, we serve amazing craft beer brewed in Oranmore, and so many of the best musicians from the West of Ireland call our stage their home. So, if you’re after a Galway bar that feels like no other, you’ve really landed on your feet at M. Fitzgerald’s.  


Cracking night out on the cards? M. Fitzgerald’s is here for you. There’s always a session happening, whether you’re after a singer-songwriter to ease you into the evening or a full-on band to set you up for a lively night on the town. After all, there’s nothing like a bit of music to whisk you away on an unforgettable night.  


They say “good sense is as important as food” – and we’re inclined to agree here at M. Fitzgerald’s. Whether you’re looking for a slap-up Irish fry, a stew better than granny’s, a seafood dish pulled fresh from the Atlantic, or an updated continental classic served with a smile, we should definitely be on your list. Because we know a thing or two about great food, so call in and taste for yourself!  


We might be a traditional Irish bar, but we’ve a fair idea how to make a good cocktail. In fact, our mixologists at Penny Bar are ready to mix up a lot of cracking libations to suit your personal preferences. And why wouldn’t you try one – sure, you can always go back to your pint of stout afterwards; it’s not going anywhere!
